Messin' With My System

Shrimp Daddy’s seminal recording, “Messin’ With My System”. Inspired in equal measure by the sounds of Little Walter and William Clarke, “Messin’ With My System” is a must have for any blues aficionado’s library.

Shrimp’s powerful baritone voice, rich harp tone and tasty phrasing will carry the listener through tunes filled with both irony and good humour. They call him “Shrimp Daddy” and he plays the “Blues”. His deep gravelly vocals, accompanied by the mesmerizing sound of his harmonica, supported by his hard playing band “The Sharpshooters” whisks you to the juke joints of Mississippi, the hard edge blues clubs of Chicago, as well as jumpin’ and swingin’ west coast style. The music of Little Walters, Willie Dixon, Howlin Wolf & Muddy Waters augmented with the unforgettable sound of William Clarke are a few of his many inspirations.

Transplanted from “La Belle Province” this native Montrealer now makes Toronto his home. Shrimp Daddy is a driving force in vocalizing, interpreting and writing Chicago and West Coast jump and swing blues. Michael “Shrimp Daddy” Reid is a must hear!
